What is the current problem? 

The existing box culvert was built in 1936 and is in poor condition.  Erosion is occurring on the Route D embankment due to frequent flooding during heavy rain events.

 

What exactly is being done to address the problem?

The project will replace the existing box culvert with a larger box culvert. The project also includes raising the grade of Route D about 18 inches to reduce the frequency of roadway flooding.

What is the construction impact?

Route D will be closed during construction between Route T and Cappeln-Osage Rd.  The signed detour will be Route T north to Route N east to Route Z south and vice versa. New right-of-way and easements will be required.

When is construction expected to begin?

Construction is set to begin in November 2023, with an expected completion date by February 2024.
